Carnaby is a mecca for gastronomic obsessives. With new restaurants and bars popping up in Carnaby ALL THE TIME, it's easy for each visit to the area to feel like a brand new experience. We're not blowing our own trumpet here (well, kind of), but this could be why we're known for being a top-class London foodie destination.
In Carnaby, the world is your oyster, with 14 streets representing 30 cuisines - you can take a trip around the globe from the comfort of your chair. Alongside underground cocktail dens, cosy date night spots and speedy lunch time grab-and-go's, it's easy to wander around, and around, and around, until you happen upon the perfect place. But sometimes you might be in for a big surprise, turn a corner and you'll face something new and unexpected.
Two Kingly Court newcomers have made a big impression on the area's dining scene. After popping up around Carnaby, Syrian restaurateur Imad Alarnab has put down roots on the third floor with Imad's Syrian Kitchen. Next-door, Korean Dinner Party brings the late-night vibes with plenty of kimchi, fried chicken and Yakult cocktails.
Immerse yourself in the taste of the Mediterranean with fresh fish, octopus and more at INO - the latest addition to Newburgh Quarter.
On Ganton Street Pam's has settled in nicely with punchy cocktails, a whole lot of steak and a hell of a view of the illuminated lightbulbs. Located opposite, Mamma Pastrama is representing the NYC dining scene with a cool take on the classic pastrami sandwich.
Just around the corner on Kingly Street, Bar Crispin is known for its organic wine and experimental small plates - anchovy and potato Foccacia with salsa verde anyone?
Although they haven't quite opened their doors to the public yet, put these new places on your radar for when they open this autumn:
Bringing oodles of noodles, Japanese tonkatsu ramen spot Kanada-Ya will land in Foubert's Place with it's specialist pork broth and zingy small bites.
Flying over from Istanbul, Zahter is ready to bring a slice of Turkish cuisine to Carnaby.
Dirty Bones are set to open their brand new Kingly Court restaurant on October 4th. We've heard there's a special mouth-watering truffle burger ready to light up your tastebuds too.
